On The Record: International duo Girl Crush chat to us about ‘Small Talk’, sweet merch and their prom night party


Hey, thanks for talking to us. Could you tell our readers a little bit about yourself?

Hi! We’re two people who fancy dreamy synths and heartbroken yet loving vocals. 

What inspirations have gone into defining your sound?

It all started with a mood, it was very spontaneous. It was all very unconscious and we didn’t talk much the first few times we made music. We were both drawn to intimate and lush sounds, to bitter sweet and whimsical feelings.We found ourselves creating certain vibes for each other and before long we ended up making a strange dream world. 

How did the new single come about?

It began with some interlocking guitar riffs and some muted tones and the feelings evolved from there. Lyrically it’s about empty promises but it’s also about modern failures of communications. It’s not a bitter song. It’s cute. It’s feisty but also modest. 

How did it evolve in the studio from the original demo?

Small Talk was the first song we wrote together and it was pretty much written in a few hours. The production accompanied the writing hand in hand. We liked the way the demo sounded and only changed a few things before release. We wanted to keep the spontaneity and levity of how it came about.

Is it part of a larger project, an EP or album? 

We have lots of songs and a whole release schedule slated for this year but we aren’t really into the idea of albums at this point.  At the moment we are planning each song to be released as a single with it’s own little mini world of art and design. We might do some kind of collected physical release at the end of the year.

What else are you guys involved in creatively at the moment?

We are working on lots of new songs and lots of clothing and design ideas. We’ve had a great response from people to our clothes and have nearly sold out our second run of T’s. We’ve got lots of other lovely ideas of things we want to make for people.

Do you have any gigs coming up?

We have a big prom night party on September 6th at the waiting room in London, Stoke Newington. You can get your tickets on dice, it will be a party fo sho.

What else can people look forward to over the next few months?

More dreamy tunes! More great clothes!
